  Add to Calendar 2017-10-16 9:15 2017-10-20 17:00 Europe/Paris Transnational Regulation, Voluntary Standards and Trade

This Executive Training Seminar, organized by the School of Transnational Governance, provides a comprehensive and practical discussion of the manner in which business actors and civil society attempt to attenuate negative spillovers, address emerging problems of common interest and better achieve regulatory objectives in today’s globalized economy.

The seminar will focus on questions such as: Who (should) participate in these processes and why? What are their distributional consequences? Are Voluntary Sustainability Standards (VSS) effective in achieving their objectives? How do private standards interact with the multilateral trade regime and domestic governance? How can we address the increasing fragmentation of the emerging global governance architecture in this arena?

In exploring these subjects and considering the associated policy challenges, the training will employ a combination of lectures, case studies, interactive seminars and simulations.

In addition to the scientific coordinators, participants will have the opportunity to interact with practitioners from relevant international organizations who work on VSS and related projects in developing countries.

Participation is by application only (Deadline 4 October)

Please apply by emailing your CV and Motivation letter to Silvia Dell'Acqua (details below).

Fees: 1,500 € (10% reduction for early registrations)

A discount of 25% will be applied to the charges for international European and national civil servants, as well as to members of the NGOs.

Full or partial fee-waivers will be available on merit or needs basis.

The fees cover the cost of the course as well as coffee and lunch breaks. Travel and hotel costs are not included in the fees.
